It’s Time To Do Something About PFM
As I was asked by: ‘Enough is really enough’ on September 15, 2019 at 8:29 pm regarding one of my posts. “I agree wholeheartedly with everything you said. My question now is what do we do? Other than pray.
Here is my detailed response:
#1 Make THE decision to be, at least, ONE OF THE ONES who helps STOP THIS ABUSE. [Even the Apostle Paul withstood Peter publicly for his compromise of The Gospel, as well as other leaders]
#2 Make the Phone Calls, TODAY. DON’T put it off any longer.
#3 Ask God to STRATEGICALLY DIRECT your steps in what you should do, at least a little bit, DAILY.
#4 Continue to PRAY SPECIFICALLY (1) For God to continue to expose this and bring this to justice, (2) For God to keep your heart humble, holy, and sensitive before Him, for (3) God to truly break The Rozells and for them to have nothing but unrest in their souls until the narcissism is purged out and true repentance and full restitution is made, (4) For true spiritual healing for yourself, for those who have posted their stories, and for the silent ones – those who want to, but have not.
#5 EMAIL, CALL, SEND REGISTERED LETTERS to: (1) Don McClure, (2) Calvary Chapel Association, (3) [Note: Do not call The Mayor’s Office but rather Email/Send Registered Letters to]: Rob McCoy at the Mayor’s Office of Thousand Oaks, California and also Godspeak Calvary Chapel, (4) The Bureau of Consumer Protection | Federal Trade Commission, and (5) News Agencies (but only if you feel so directed to do so by The Holy Spirit).  Express your concern and briefly share your story, especially if you are one of the ones who was abused by PFM.  Ask what HAS been done so far, IS currently being done, and is GOING TO BE DONE in the future [Ask for specifics, Scheduled Timetable, etc.] regarding Potters Field Ministries, their assets, accountability, retribution, etc. Don’t let them ‘drop the ball’ or simply ‘sweep it under the rug’ and forget it.  Take notes during the conversation and ask for Documentation regarding the same. Then share the same on The Phoenix Preacher site.  Advise that you will contact them again in the near future to see how this is progressing. Refuse any political-speak of white-washing or Christian sugar-coating. Be cordial, gracious, and polite in your inquiries but also firm. Express your deep concern as one of the abused. Consider writing out what you want to cover / say before the phone call.  Encourage them that something more MUST be done.
#6 Know that God WILL protect you from Potters Field Ministries and their Leaders
[#7 & #8 are two separate posts previously posted by others, and are verbatim]:
#7 If at any time you were employed by Mudman Burgers and worked on the Mudman trucks while in California [or any other state that they were serving] and was denied overtime, minimum wage, meal & rest periods, or suffered any other type of unlawful practice including sexual harassment, you may be entitled to back pay, waiting time penalties, and liquidated damages. you also have the right to contact an employment attorney before the one-year Statute of limitations runs out for filing a PAGA lawsuit against PFM and its related entities.
If you are one of the above-mentioned aggrieved workers, you have a lot more power than you think to bring accountability to Potters Field Ministries and the enablers.
Some interesting links regarding PAGA below.
#8 Below are links to the top 5 employment law firms in California for filing PAGA lawsuits.
#9 Copy and Share BOTH my previous posts [‘It’s Time to Do Something’ on September 9, 2019 and October 4, 2019] on this site with others who may not see them at this particular location on The Phoenix Preacher. Do so via emails, texts, message boards, etc.
#10 If you know of a location that PFM ministered to/at in the past, contact them and share with them “The Phoenix Preacher” and encourage them to not just read the initial posts, but all the Responses afterwards – that is where the true story is found. Let them prayerfully draw their own conclusions.
#11 Continue to Encourage each other and make sure you are doing this for God’s glory [Colossians 3:17, 23]
#12 Know that the Calvary Chapel form of ‘Pastoral One-Man Rule Government’ of “touch not God’s anointed” that is abused by some Calvary Chapels (not all) has absolutely nothing to do with The New Testament but was under the theocratic rule of God in the Old Covenant/Testament. Everyone is simply a SERVANT and Child of God with different callings – each one equally important, with different responsibilities, etc. The ground is level at the Cross – no man stands higher than anyone else.
Know that the final outcome is in God’s hands. But if you do nothing, then you have not done what is required of you by Scripture. Again, read and share my two previous posts to motivate and encourage others. And remember: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men (and women) to do nothing.” ― Edmund Burke. Make a difference.
Hope this helps…
